Recorded and Mixed @ apt 109 Arnaz Dr, LA, CA in October 1994 by Kurt Matlin
I met these girls at the mall. They came over to the crib and we got some Alize and ended up being a part of my recoding on this one. i liked their character and voice of what the record was trying to reflect...that ghetto attitude-Keith
While recoding songs for the album, from time to time Keith would say "I'm leaving that part open for a girl's voice" and I would say, "ok, who's the girl?" He would say I don't know yet, but eventually he'd find one (or two in this case) which were perfect for the part...what a pimp!-Kurt
Keisha: Hey wassup Tori?
Tori: Yeah Wassup Keisha?
Keisha: You heard about this party tonight?

Keisha: Hey Saquille gone be there, you know we about to gank him for his money
Tori: Yeah and I heard R Kelly is gonna be there too
Keisha: Let's get pregnant and have they babies, alimony, child support
Tori: Yeah that's what I'm talkin' about a little bit 'a child support
Keisha: Pay us all your life...
Remember me back in the days, I used to call you
Practically beg you, to try to get with you
I got your pager number, "Rah Rah" let's rip it up
Honey's let's toast to this and fellas, let's sip it up
How's ya kid, ugly man or the babies?
I got chauffeur working with a pearl white Mercedes
Yes I do, my lines you can't get through
Gettin' beat up by your man your eyes are black and blue
Like OJ did Nicole, you're home lookin' old
Using detergent, the soap powder called Bold
You got nuthin' right now, tryin' milk a cow
Six phones in the house, how ya like me now?
Getting served in bed deserts on the head
3 time winner naked star I'm a thorough-bred
Chorus: Girls: Remember me?
Keith: No I don't, where I know you from?
Girls: I know you remember me!
Keith: No, I don't
Continuing you was all that, you got the right man
The kids are starvin', bills are comin' where's superman?
Ridin' around hittin' switches
Talkin' ta broads and all them other fake shhh...
You was the women one time always hung with stars
Hung in the bars, and rode in all the flyest cars
Tryin' be somebody, who you're not
You only know a person when his status levels' hot
When the party come, you on the guest list
A regular member your home-girls like to dis
You'd like to give a shout out to your boy friend
The Box is on, I hate to see your ugly face again
Now you're tryin' meet the Ewing and the Ant Mason
The whole Nick team, you steady dream keep chasin'
So annoying in fact, security gets you back
Around high class folks you don't know how to act
Keepin' it real, my pockets with a dollar bill
I ride in a cab, I see you walkin' up the hill
You got much to say, gossip mouth everyday
Go out dutch and all the fellas make 'em pay
?Too much ladies who still weak in the brain?
Now you turn on your TV, now you see me on Soul Train
Keisha: Girl look there go Shaquille right there I be back, I'm about to go get them digits
Tori: Yeah girl you go do that, cuz that's all he can do for you anyway
Keisha: And you know it!
Not you, drinkin' Moet and actin' quiet
With your lips on that glass, I bet your life you didn't buy it
Walking around with your bag from the Conway
34th street, you suck your teeth, turn your eye away
Lookin' for the funny Joe, in his ride
I'm on your case that that old show Iron Side
Hangin' in Harlem eatin' chicken
Waiting for your kids father, checks in your WIC in
Callin' up kids for Hot 97 tix
Tryin' swindle, sneak up in the mix
Beggin' in clubs for the front seat
Livin' that life style, like pants without a crease
You on some new stuff I pull up and I call your bluff
Lookin' like that cartoon, the one they call Puff 'N' Stuff
I walked around, yo who did I see?
The same person in my face with her friends callin' me
Keisha: Shaquille, look at Shaquille Junior, look at 'em he got your eyes, you must pay up now baby, yeah you did the crime, now do the time
Tori: Don't try yo fake the funk you know it's your baby, you got the money so why don't you pay up?
Keisha: Oh he gone pay up ain't cha? Yeah you are, cuz it's yours!
Kool Keith began his rap career with the group Ultramagnetic MCs. After the release of Critical Beatdown, Thornton was
reportedly institutionalized in Bellevue Hospital Center. However, he later said that the idea that he was institutionalized came from a flippant remark made during a stressful interview and he never expected the story to become so well-known....more
